The Oxford Anthology of Western Music, Volume Two: The Mid-Eighteenth Century to the Late Nineteenth Century, accompanies the late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century portion of The Oxford History of Western Music, College Edition*, by Richard Taruskin and Christopher H. Gibbs (9780195097627). Beginning with Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and ending with Giacomo Puccini, this comprehensive volume features forty-four different composers from seven different countries.

Designed with students in mind, this unique collection includes introductory essays at the beginning of each piece and an index of names and terms.
